Orange Cardamom Krumkake

Rated as 4.67 out of 5 Stars

"I decided to try a new recipe with a little more flavor than the traditional one I've been using. This one was definitely a hit. The krumkake turned out nicely crisp with a surprising orange spice flavor. My krumkake iron is electric and took a little over a minute to cook each one, but traditional irons will vary according to how hot it is."

  1. Grease the krumkake iron with oil or vegetable spray. Heat iron over medium low heat. You should only need to grease the iron once. If using an electric krumkake iron, follow manufacturer's directions for preheating.
  2. Sift the flour, cardamom, ginger, cinnamon, and nutmeg into a large bowl. Stir the sugar, salt, and orange zest into the flour mixture until evenly blended.
  3. Place the butter and half-and-half into a microwavable bowl. Cover and cook in microwave until warm, about 25 seconds. Cool slightly. Whisk the eggs, one at a time, into to the half-and-half mixture. Stir the cream mixture into the flour mixture until well blended.
  4. Using preheated krumkake iron, place 1 tablespoon of batter onto each krumkake mold, using a second spoon to scrape off the batter. Close the krumkake iron, and cook until the iron stops steaming and the cookies are golden brown, 30 to 60 seconds. Carefully peel the krumkake cookie from the iron and while still hot, and wrap around a wooden krumkake cone to make the traditional cone shape. Hold in place until set, about 10 seconds, remove and cool completely on waxed paper. Repeat with remaining batter.

WOW this is not your traditional krumkake. Great bold flavor. My electric iron took 20 to 30 seconds to cook. We definitely liked the pale ones best. I got 36 out of recipe. This will be a ...

These taste more spicy a few days later. We enjoyed them and I'm now working on just the right filling to go with the flavors. I used a pizzele iron

I would have rated this a 3, but my husband couldn't stop eating them, and my coworkers really enjoyed them. Not to mention I'm sure this is a much more interesting flavor than the original Kru...

This recipe makes a delicious spiced cookie that everyone liked when I brought them to work. I omitted the orange zest but they tasted fine without it. They came out light and crisp!

I loved the spiced favors for this krumkaka. I prefer a paper thin cookie so I added a 1/4 cup of hot water to the batter and it was perfect.

Very good. Nice refreshing flavor.

Thank you for this version of Krumkake. I was looking for something with cardamom and was so pleased to find this. I left out the orange peel because I didn't have any, but that just helped to m...

Great tasting cookies! I used a mini pizzelle iron, and found that I had a hard time shaping these into anything but flat cookies. I used coriander instead of cardamom, and love the flavor! T...
